The most frequent single molar to be replaced is the first mandibular molar because this tooth is lost first. Implantation in the posterior area is a predictable procedure over time. The low rate of complications in addition to the high long.term success rate makes implant restoration a reliable solution to treat posterior partial edentulism. The use of two implants to replace a single molar seems a logical treatment solution. The following case deals with the replacement of the lower right first molar having a previously failed root canal treatment with two narrow implants of diameter 3.5. mm and height 10. mm. Replacing a single missing molar with two narrow dental implants serves as a viable treatment option providing good and predictable long.term results.
